Did you do your meal planning for the week yet? Maybe a Pasta Monday, Taco Tuesday, Pizza Wednesday, Quiche Thursday, and a Bouillabaisse Friday. Wait, Bouill-a-what? Even the most seasoned home chef might not know exactly what a bouillabaisse is, so here you go: it is a fish stew that French fishermen created in the port city of Marseille. The name of the stew comes from “to boil” and “to simmer.”
You can really use any variety of fresh fish and shellfish in the stew, and simmer them with tomatoes, potatoes, celery, and onions. Don’t forget to serve a warm grilled baguette on the side with a traditional French spicy mayonnaise called rouille.
And since the most important ingredient in this fish stew is fish, don’t forget to sharpen your fillet knife before you chop up your ingredients.

Today is National Salesperson Day, a day to honor and celebrate salespeople across the nation, just by simply saying “thank you”, or by going an extra step and getting them a thoughtful gift. Does your company have its own team of knowledgeable salespeople who deserve a service award? Or do you have a close relationship with the friendly salespeople who come to your office with their “new and latest” product? Generosity needs no sales pitch, so be generous this week and reward them with a thoughtful Leatherman tool.

I think it’s safe to say that pizza is one of the most liked foods in America. No matter your preferences or dietary restrictions, there is an option for you. Dairy allergy? Hold the cheese. Celiac’s disease? Gluten-free crust. Vegetarian? Hold the pepperoni. Going Keto? Cauliflower crust.
But there’s one thing most people will agree on- Hold those anchovies! If you order a pizza with “The Works”, chances are the chef will throw a couple of those bad boys on your gooey hot pizza, and you might not notice until you bite in!
Today is National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day- a day where everyone needs a solid American-made pizza cutter to slice up their pizza, no matter their choice of toppings.
